Billy Corgan Says "I Love Me Cats"

In between his many commitments, which these days include his Madame ZuZu's Teahouse and recording a new  Smashing Pumpkins  album,  Billy Corgan  has found time for another worthy cause: his local animal shelter. The Pumpkins frontman has lent his name and fame to the Pets Are Worth Saving, or PAWS, shelter in Chicago and has adopted two cats.  He also serves as an adoption counselor to help others take home a new pet, giving frequent shout-outs and retweets from  his Twitter account  and even serving as the new cover guy on  PAWS  magazine's new issue. 

The magazine cover features a grinning Corgan with his two kitties, Sammy and Mr. Thom -- the subject of a Tweet proclaiming "I love me cats!"

Maybe spending all that time with  Motley Crue  drummer and PETA member  Tommy Lee  lately has something to do with Corgan's shift. He posted an update on the  Smashing Pumpkins site  a few days ago that he's now a pescetarian, eating no other forms of meat except for fish.

On the Smashing Pumpkins front, Corgan has most recently updated fans to say that the lyrics for the new album,  Monument to an Elegy , are finished. The first single from the album is expected by the end of 2014.
